Rates of asthma are on the increase and now many children suffer the chronic wheezing and breathing difficulties associated with their condition. Common triggers are dust mites, pollen, animal hair and even stress. Conventional inhalers alleviate the symptoms associated with asthma, but there are also herbal treatments that can provide similar relief.
Lobelia and visinaga herbs help to relax teh muscles of the bronchial tubes and make breathing easier. Other herbs such as elecampane and nettle interrupt the body’s overproduction of anti-inflammatory compounds and expectorant herbs such as honeysuckle and thyme may also prove useful.
